Glorious autumn weather, free cakes and interesting routes – what more is needed? 19 girder-fork machines and a further 15 ‘moderns’ took part in the 2018 Girder Fork Run. The riders of the girder machines were given a route card that led on a meandering 60 mile run through the Surrey and Hampshire lanes, whilst the modern machines were led on a guided run. Start and finish was the British Legion Club in Normandy, where cakes and refreshments were generously provided by riders’ partners.
There was an interesting selection of machines, including a Brough, Rudge Ulster, Benelli Sei and a curious pre-war Ariel with a Honda twin engine! Riders from several local sections took part as well as Brooklands members. A very good day for all, and thanks are due to Tony Baxter, Phil Winks, Richard Huckle and several wives & partners.
